Content Management SystemsBrilliantWeb builds all sites using the Joomla Content Management System (CMS). This is a tool that allows a non-technical person to add and edit web site content. If we build a web site for you, you have the option, at any time, to take over web site maintenance functions.
The majority of our clients still elect to outsource web site maintenance to BrilliantWeb's maintenance team. However a growing number are editing their own sites.
